    I'll suggest an "oldie but goodie" from Resources for Early Childhood: A Handbook edited by Nuba, Searson & Sheiman - my chapter on "Early Childhood Education for Peace." [pages 249-286]
    You may also want to contact Dr. Candice Carter recent Chair of the Peace Education SIG of the American Educational Research Association [AERA]. BH

    The absolute best resource that I highly recommend is Teaching Young Children in Violent Times: Building a Peaceable Classroom by Diane Levin. Over the years she's excerpted parts of chapters as articles (and published articles that became chapters in the book) that you can find available to read all over the web.

    The book is amazing because it excerpts dialogue and classroom discussions in a really amazing, with running commentary and analysis in a side-by-side column format. The whole book is a perfect blend of theory and practice; I find myself re-reading parts of it every single year.

    Dear Deborah-

    The complete citation is:
    Hinitz, B. (1994). Early childhood education for peace. Pp. 249-286. In Nuba, Searson & Sheiman. Resources for Early Childhood: A Handbook. NY: Garland. [Garland was bought by Routledge a number of years ago, so it no longer exists as a separate publisher. If you can't get the book in a local or university library, it should be available on interlibrary loan.]

    Please let me know if you find any similar resources with more recent publication dates. I'm still teaching peace education.

    ​Thanks Blythe, I am interested in this topic.  My friends Dr. Patti Bailie, Ruth Wilson, and I have done some work on peace education, nature, and spiritual development.  We see a natural link between these disciplines.  In fact, we are offering a special retreat sometime this year on this topic.  Are you interested in joining us?  What is your own background and interest in this topic of peace education?  How do you approach it for young children?  Eager to hear from you.
